Jeremy Hunt MP has agreed to dissolve the scandal-hit Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust.
Under today's announcement, Stafford Hospital could still retain consultant-led maternity services after the Health Secretary agreed for NHS England to carry out a review into the issue.
The original plan from administrators had been for maternity services to close. However, this was later amended to the creation of a midwife-led unit. Mr Hunt has now agreed for a review of that decision.
